Though the Bionicle toys had been around for several years by the time of this film's release, the characters were designed to look as if they inspired the toys, rather than being inspired by them: while the animators could have recreated the exact look of the toys, they gave the characters a more biological look.

Gathered friends, listen again to our legend, of the Bionicle. In a time, before time, the great spirit, Mata Nui, fell from the heavens, carrying we, the ones called the Matoran. We were separate, and without purpose, so the Great Spirit illuminated us with the three virtues: Unity, Duty, and Destiny!

Toward the end of the credits, a sentence written in Matoran script appears. It reads: "No Rahi were harmed in the making of this film". ("Rahi" is a term that refers to Mata-Nui's fauna.) See more »
Not a terrible film -- my 10 year old boy loved it, and he would be the target demographic, so I guess they hit the spot. Pretty dull for an adult though.
Hard to relate to animated lego characters, even mod high-tech ones.
I thought the choice of the three great virtues of the Bionicle world was a bit odd -- unity, duty, and destiny. Am I the only one who thinks those sound just a bit fascistic? Especially destiny. What about freedom, equality, justice, etc.?
Oh well, it will sell Lego. Kind of dull for a movie, but not bad for a 74-minute advertisement. Could have been a lot worse.
